Stacey Gibbs’ dynamic and modern compositional voice has rightfully earned him a distinguished place in the twenty-first century American choral canon. In this day-and-age, to find someone this talented who is also a beautiful and kind human is a tremendous gift.

Susan LaBarr Walton Music Editor Springfield, Missouri

Stacey Gibbs’s reinvention of the African American Spiritual is an exhilarating gift to choirs around the world. His pieces shine with innovation and energy, but always maintaining the dignity and heart of the genre. His beloved arrangements are vehicles for protest, but also a doorway to liberation and hope.

Stacey is a masterful composer. What’s struck me most about working with him is his instinctive understanding of harmony. There is a lusciousness in his writing that’s stylish, transformative and yet totally uncontrived, which is a rare gift. He’s also brilliant at writing for voices. It takes someone with real skill to understand how to contour individual lines and phrases in a way that both sounds natural to listeners and also feels effortless to singers, but Stacey always delivers music that achieves both. He is a complete joy to work with, and I’m so grateful to have developed such a positive working relationship and friendship with him. I hope it continues long into the future.
